Actions are the mirror that reflects the soul.

Today, the Almighty Authority Father is pleased to see His Shakti Army. To what extent has each of you master almighty souls imbibed all powers within yourself? You know all the main powers very well and you have created your own picture based on them. This picture is a sign of the living form. It is the indication of your nobility, that is, your greatness. When each action is elevated and great, it proves that you have used your powers in action, in practice. Whether souls are weak or powerful, whether they are full of all powers or complete embodiments of power, this is known through their actions, because they have to come into connection with people and have to interact in situations. This is why there are the terms, “karma shetra” (field of action), “karma sambandh” (relationships through actions) “karma indriya” (organs with which actions are performed - physical senses), “karma bhog” (suffering of karma) and “karma yoga” (yoga whilst in action). Therefore, the speciality of this physical world is “karma” (action). Just as the speciality of the incorporeal world is to be beyond action, that is, to be detached from action, so, the corporeal world means action. If actions are elevated, then the reward too is elevated. When actions are corrupt, sorrow is the reward. However, the basis of both is action. Your actions are the mirror that gives a vision of the soul. Through the mirror of action you can recognise your form of power. If no power is revealed through action, then, no matter how much someone says that he is a master almighty authority, if that hasn’t been revealed through his actions while on the field of action, would anyone then believe him? For instance, although someone may claim to be a very good soldier or very good at fighting, if he is not able to fight with an enemy on the battlefield and is defeated, would anyone believe that he is a good soldier? In the same way, someone may intellectually consider himself to be an embodiment of power, but if he is unable to use that particular power in a difficult situation, or when coming into connection with others, at the time when he needs a particular power, would anyone believe that he is an embodiment of power? Simply for your intellect to understand this is just like you sitting at home and considering yourself to be very clever. However, if you don’t show that form at that time, if you are unable to use the power you need at that time, if you remember it after the time has passed, would you then be called an embodiment of power? This greatness is needed in action. Use the power in action according to the time. So, check your activity throughout the whole day to see to what extent you have become a master almighty authority. Which special power makes you victorious at the right time and in which power are you weak and thus repeatedly defeated? Some children know in which powers they are weak, and they even speak of them, but only in an ordinary way, when there is a virtue-filled gathering or in an atmosphere of similar effort-makers. The majority try to hide their weakness from others. Some speak of their weakness at that time, but they don’t have that much recognition of the seed of that weakness; they speak about it superficially. They speak at length of the external form, but they do not reach the seed. Therefore, what is the result? They prune the branches of that weakness and they thereby feel for a short time as though that weakness has finished. However, because the seed is still there, because it receives the water of various situations, the branches of that same weakness start to grow again. Nowadays, illnesses in the world are not permanently cured, because doctors don’t know the seed of the illness. This is why the illness is suppressed but isn’t completely cured. Similarly, here, too, finish the seed by knowing the seed. Some of you even know the seed, but, because of carelessness, you say, “Yes, it will happen at some time.” “It won’t be finished in just one go, it definitely takes time!” They try to be very clever in this way. At the time when they have to be powerful, they become knowledge-full. Knowledge is certainly a power, but they don’t use that knowledge as a form of power. They just use it in the form of a point. Each point of knowledge is a weapon. But they don’t use it in the form of a weapon. Therefore, understand the seed and don’t allow anything to be lacking due to carelessness that would stop you becoming complete and perfect. If, after understanding the seed, you experience yourself to have the power to know the seed but not the power to burn that seed, you can then take help from the many elevated souls who are embodiments of intense yoga (jwala swarup). Because souls are weak, they are unable to have a direct connection with the Father or to take correction from the Father, so they have to take co-operation from the second number elevated souls and have themselves verified. By having yourself verified, you will easily be purified. So, do you understand what you have to check and how?

16/04/17 Madhuban Avyakt BapDada Om Shanti 19/03/82 2/4

Firstly, don’t hide anything. Secondly, don’t ignore anything whilst knowing it; don’t just make do. When you just make do, you also cry out. So, today, BapDada was looking at the power of the Shakti Army. Now use the powers you have attained because it is your actions that give your introduction to all the souls of the world. It is through your actions that they will easily come to know you. Actions are more gross than thoughts, which are subtle energy. Souls of today are able to recognise the physical form very quickly. Generally, subtle energy is much more elevated than physical, but it is very difficult now for people to catch vibrations of the subtle power. Through the power of your actions they will continue to come to know the power of your thoughts. Serving through the mind is more elevated than serving through actions. The service you do to transform the attitudes and atmosphere through your attitude is extremely elevated. Nevertheless, it is easier to perform actions than to do that. You have also been given this definition before, but, today, Baba is clarifying the aspect of giving a glimpse or vision of you being an embodiment of power through your actions. It will become easier for the power of your thoughts to reach them through your actions. Otherwise, weak actions and the subtle energy will bring down the intellect and your thoughts, just as the earth’s gravity brings things down from above. Therefore, put that vision into a practice. Achcha.

To those who reveal every power through their actions, to those who reveal the Almighty Authority Father through being embodiments of power, to those who are embodiments of power and who constantly recognise and then transform themselves, to those who constantly grant a vision of the unique Father through their activities, to such master almighty authority souls who perform elevated actions, to the souls who are embodiments of power, BapDada’s love, remembrance and namaste.

BapDada meeting groups:

1.   The result of giving Maya hospitality is sadness.

Do you constantly consider yourselves to be BapDada’s companions? The sign of your constantly experiencing the Father’s company is constant victory. If you spend a lot of time battling and finding everything hard work, it proves that you don’t have the Father’s company. Those who experience His company constantly remain absorbed in love for Him. A soul merged in the Ocean of Love cannot be influenced by anyone else. It is not a big thing for Maya to come, but do not let her show her form. By offering hospitality to Maya you experience sadness as you move along. You feel that you are neither moving forward nor moving backward; you are unable to move backward or forward. This is the influence of Maya. The attraction of Maya doesn’t allow you to fly. In fact, there is no question of moving backward, anyway. However, if you are not moving forward, then check the seed and burn it. Don’t think, “I am moving along, I am coming, I am listening, I am serving according to my capacity.” Instead of doing that, check to what extent there is progress in your speed and your stage. Achcha.

2.   Only those who surrender to the Father with one strike become a mahaprasad (great offering).

Are all of you children especially experiencing your inheritance of the stage of liberation-in-life? Are you liberated-in-life or bound-in-life? To be a trustee means to be one who is liberated-in-life. So have you died alive or are you still dying? For how many years will you still be dying? On the path of devotion, what do they offer as prasad (bhog) to the non-living idols? What is sacrificed instantly with one strike. A sacrifice that dies crying out cannot be offered as prasad. Only those who sacrifice themselves with one strike become prasad in front of the Father, only those who surrender themselves in one go. It is an instant sacrifice for those who consider everything and think, “I am Baba’s and Baba is mine”. As soon as you have the thought, everything is finished and you are struck by the sword; you are one who has been sacrificed in an instant. If you think, “I will become that, it will happen”, and constantly put everything off until some time ahead, that is like crying out. Those who constantly think in that way cannot be liberatedin-life. As soon as you say “Baba”, then, “As is the Father, so the children”. It is not possible for the Father to be the Ocean and the children to be beggars. The Father has made you an offer, “Belong to Me!” There is nothing to think about in this. Achcha.

Questions asked by double-foreign brothers and sisters and BapDada's responses:

1.   Question: How can we children go on a world tour with Baba?

Answer: For this, you need to stabilise in the stage of a world benefactor, in an unlimited stage, the same as the Father. You will then experience what is portrayed in the picture of Shri Krishna sitting

16/04/17 Madhuban Avyakt BapDada Om Shanti 19/03/82 3/4

on the globe. You will be sitting on the globe of the world. You will automatically have toured the world. When you go to a very high place, you don't need to go around it, because by remaining in one place you are able to see everything. When you stabilise in the stage of being at the top, in the seed stage, in the stage of a world benefactor, then the whole world appears to be like a small ball. Then, because you will be in an elevated stage, you will be able to tour around in a second. You can experience going on a practical tour through divine vision sometimes or with your subtle angelic form. Just as you circle around in a plane, you can also encircle the whole world with your angelic form; you can tour the world in both these ways. Since you are the children of the Creator of the world, you will tour around the whole of creation, will you not?

2.   Question: Many times, whilst sitting in yoga we receive very good touchings, but how can we tell whether those touchings are from Baba or not?

Answer: 1) Baba's touchings are always powerful and you will experience this power to be more powerful than your own power. 2) There will be the experience of easy success in Baba's touchings. 3) There will never be questions of "Why?" or "What?" about Baba's touchings. Everything will be very clear. So, from these things, you can understand that that is a touching from Baba.

3.   Question: How can one recognise whether one has surrendered with one’s intellect or not?

Answer: The meaning of “surrendering with the intellect” is: Whatever the intellect decides will be according to shrimat, because the work of the intellect is to decide. Therefore, let nothing but shrimat enter your intellect. Because you constantly have the awareness of Baba in your intellect, that will be the decision-making power. The practical sign of that is that your judgement will be correct and filled with success. Whatever such a soul says, he will like it himself and others too will accept it as a very good thing. Everyone will feel that that your intellect is very clear and surrendered. You will be content with your intellect. There won't be any question as to whether someone is right or wrong.

4.   Question: Why is it that some children who have faith in the intellect leave after four or five years? How can this wave be finished?

Answer: The particular reason why they leave is that, although they keep very busy in service, they lose the balance between serving the self and service. That is one reason why some good children come to a halt. Another is that they have a particular sanskar in which they have been weak from the beginning, but they hide it and continue to battle with it by themselves. They don't clearly tell BapDada or the instrument souls about that weakness and thus they don’t finish that sanskar. Because they hide it, that weakness takes on a dangerous form inside them and they don't experience themselves to be making progress. They then feel disheartened and leave Baba. The third reason is that they are unable to harmonise their sanskars with those of others. Their sanskars are in conflict with those of others. In order to finish this wave of souls leaving, together with service, full attention has to be paid to keeping a balance between self-service and service. Everyone who comes needs to be very clear with BapDada and the instrument souls. If you feel that service is too much, then first think of a means for your own progress. Also tell the instrument souls about your feelings. First, draw the attention of the new ones to these things. Check your own sanskars first. If you have a conflict of sanskars with anyone, it is good to step away from that person. It is better to separate yourself from any circumstances where there is a conflict of sanskars.

5.   Question: If there is no result from the service done at a particular place, is that due to one's own weakness or is it due to the land there being like that?

Answer: First of all, try using all types of facilities for service. If, after doing all types of service, there is still no result, then it is possible that it could be the land. If service is not increasing due to your own weakness, then your conscience will definitely bite that service is not taking place because of you. At such a time, take help from one another and fill one another with force. If

16/04/17 Madhuban Avyakt BapDada Om Shanti 19/03/82 4/4

it is due to you, then the souls that emerge from that land will also be weak; they won't be intense effort-makers. Achcha.

Blessing: May you become constantly victorious by transforming the attitudes of others with your own efforts as well as by experimenting with yoga.

Effort prepares the land and that is necessary but, along with effort, also transform the attitudes of others by experimenting with yoga and success will visibly come close to you. With strong faith and the experimentation of yoga, you can transform anyone’s intellect. Whenever there has been some upheaval in service, it is by experimenting with yoga that they gained victory. So, prepare the land through your effort, but, in order to reveal the seed, experiment with yoga and you will then receive the blessing of being victorious.

Slogan: Those who accumulate the treasure of charity by doing service are charitable souls.

Daily Positive Thoughts: April 16, 2017: Create rather than wait

Daily Positive Thoughts: April 16, 2017: Create rather than wait

Create rather than wait

'Create rather than wait' - at least not for too long! Seeing options, choose what to do now rather than wait for the ideal time, person or circumstance to arrive before acting decisively. Though patience is important, it's important not to become passive.The Art Of Living (Part 3)

Our mind, body, wealth and relationships are four out of five aspects of each one of our lives and all of us intend to make them successful. It is natural to desire that our mind be content and peaceful, our body be healthy and we earn wealth without facing any obstacles and also our relationships our beautiful. But all of these desires will only get fulfilled if along with taking care of all of them, we include God at every step of our lives. You might ask what has God got to do with my physical wealth or my job? But remember it is your healthy and pleasant mind which influences your physical body positively and makes you healthy and a powerful mind cannot be experienced constantly without a loveful relationship with God. In the same way, without God’s help, we may be able to run our jobs for some time but the journey may be stressful and the money earned may not give to us a lot of happiness. Also, what use is a beautiful relationship if God is not there to share the happiness of that relationship with? A lovely parent or a child for e.g. is a result of our good actions of past lives. So shouldn’t I include God in this happiness? God is like a parent Himself who deserves to be told each and every little thing that I experience in a worldly relationship. By doing this, relationships will be positive and peaceful continuously.
Sometimes, we start to think that God is just a concept and not a reality. But remember God is a beautiful living energy with a heart and all that we have to do is love Him with a pure heart and He will fill our life with happiness and make all the different aspects of our lives, which we have discussed, full of success and our lives will become an inspiration for others.


One of the ways through which you can give others hope, is to Have Only Positive Expectations of them.

When you see beyond their shortcomings, and only see their strengths and potential,  your vision of hope allows them to discover and use their strengths and potential.

Message for the day

It is on the basis of actions that praise is received.

Thought to Ponder: The one who only talks but is not able to put his talk into practice does not become worthy of praise. On the other hand, the one who is able to bring his good thoughts and words into action becomes worthy of praise. Such a person's actions become inspirational for others and encourage them to follow him.

Point to Practice: When I am able to act according to my thoughts and words, I am able to take inspiration to do more. For every positive action that I do, I experience support and good wishes from others which encourage me constantly. My account of positivity is always full and it takes me further to a cycle of positivity making it a habit. So I find that I don't have to work hard for performing positive actions.

Daily Positive Thoughts: April 15, 2017: Relationships

Daily Positive Thoughts: April 15, 2017: Relationships


A sensible person knows it is a waste of time and energy to get angry. Effort will then have to be made to reconstruct that relationship. It is much more useful to breathe deeply, pay attention to your attitude and answer without rushing. In this way, improve and strengthen your relationships with others

The Art Of Living (Part 2)

A very important and the fourth pillar of life that we all depend on so much is our personal and professional relationships and interactions which give us strength and are also a medium of give and take. We give peace, love and happiness and get blessings in return. They say that all the people who surround you and make up your life play an important role in shaping up your personality and success filled relationships are a source of immense joy for each one of us. 

The fifth and most important aspect of our lives is God, who makes our life beautiful and our mind, body, wealth and relationships are shaped positively by remembering Him. God does not give us our minds but teaches us how to make our minds beautiful by connecting our minds with His. Also, our physical costume or the precious vehicle, when used in the way God wants us to use it, makes our actions filled with divinity and purity. Even our wealth and the way we use it gets affected positively when we earn it by making God our constant companion and giving Him due respect by keeping a small amount aside from our profits, for the service of people and their betterment. And lastly our relationships can never be successful without including God in them. What that means is that I take from God and share with others. I connect others with Him. These five different aspects of our life define our life. All are important in their own way and how good we are in handling all of them makes us happy and content. These different aspects or pillars are the foundation of our lives and all of them are connected with each other. Even if one pillar is weak, it affects our lives in a negative way. 

(To be continued tomorrow …)

Let go of what you can't control.

Try to control the uncontrollable, & you end up feeling more frustrated & stressed.  

Realize:  There are aspects that you can control, & there will always be aspects that you can't control.

Let go of what you can't control.  And focus on what you can control. Then you'll reduce your stress & increase your response skills.

Message for the day

To make the internal stage powerful is to be protected. 

Thought to Ponder: Situations and challenges will continue to challenge me, but when I am strong from within I am able to withstand and move forward with every challenge. I need to work on making myself stronger at each step. When I have weaknesses, even a small little challenge will make me weak and vulnerable. I will, then, not have the strength to move forward. 

Point to Practice: Today I will strengthen myself. Strength comes from faith. When I believe that I am strong, I am. So, today I will practice a simple thought like "Victory is my birthright" or "I have the power to transform" or "God is my companion at every step". Such thoughts silently build strength into me. 

In Spiritual Service,
Brahma Kumaris

Daily Positive Thoughts: April 14, 2017: Cheerfulness

Daily Positive Thoughts: April 14, 2017: Cheerfulness 


Protecting my sense of optimism is the best way to remain cheerful. I can do this by starting the day with meditation to pour light and love into the scenes I am likely to find ahead of me that day. And then if I keep touching base with God’s mind and His benevolent way of seeing things, the inner happiness I experience will help me pass through any situation without feeling weary.

The Art Of Living (Part 1)

A very significant and beautiful intention that all of us carry inside our minds is of making our lives full of plenty of joy in every sphere that is connected to us e.g. If our relationships lack love then the first thing that comes to our mind is to make ourselves so nice as a person so that people around us respect us and we receive love from them and life becomes fulfilling by doing that. Remember there are five beautiful aspects of our lives that need to be made perfect in every way. One is our physical costume or body which we need to take care of in every way including our health and physical personality which helps us in achieving life’s purpose through it. Spirituality helps us in making proper use of our body for achieving our purpose. This is called karma yoga or the art of performing day-to-day karmas in the remembrance of God for making the actions successful.
Another aspect is our mind which is also like a temple in which we need to always have pure thoughts and feelings as well as emotions. Our mind is the place where our entire life originates and everything we do on a physical level first takes place in our mind. Remember the negatives and the positives will at times exist in our minds but it is the extent of both which matters. The negative needs to be minimal and the positive needs to be as much as possible. Also, our wealth is a third aspect of our lives, which needless to say, is important in its own way and life would be incomplete without it.

(To be continued tomorrow …)


Do you get defensive when being criticized? Get defensive and you stop yourself from taking useful suggestions from the criticism.

The next time criticism comes your way, try this: get your focus away from the negative tone of the criticism and focus on deep breathing.  Breathe away any heightened emotion and watch your defensiveness fade away.

Now think about the criticism and keep the useful bits and filter out the rest.

Message for the day

The best dress is humility. 

Thought to Ponder:   I need to always wear the dress of humility. When there is arrogance or ego of any kind, there is no beauty in anything I do. On the other hand, humility brings the willingness to learn and grow. It also keeps me cheerful at all times. So, there is beauty in all I do.

Point to Practice: Today I will wear the dress of humility. I will consciously watch myself if I am caught up with ego of any kind. Feelings of inferiority or rigidity also come from ego. So, today I will be free from ego and do whatever I have to with the consciousness of being humble. 

In Spiritual Service,
Brahma Kumaris

Daily Positive Thoughts: April 13, 2017: Space for God

Daily Positive Thoughts: April 13, 2017: Space for God

Space for God

The best solutions to problems will not be the result of hard thinking. Use your time better by creating peaceful thoughts, and problems will cease to affect you. Do not try to solve everything on your own. Leave some space for God to come and help you.

Performing A Spiritual Audit At The End Of The Day (Part 2)

Yesterday we had explained how self-evaluation at the end of the day is extremely vital to one's progress and development. A useful exercise in this regard is keeping a daily chart for about 3 personality traits or points and filling it up every night (lesser than 3 is also fine, but not more, because then you might feel lazy in keeping the chart after a few days and also you might lose focus and the personality traits may not transform as much as you want). You could either evaluate yourself with a yes or no or perform a percentage wise evaluation like 50% or 90% for e.g. we have mentioned below, some of the common traits from which you could select the traits to keep a daily chart for. You could incorporate some other specific traits (not mentioned in this list), which you want to change or develop, depending on your personality:

In the entire day, today; not only in my words and actions, but also in my thoughts:

- Did I see everyone's specialties and keep good wishes for each one, in spite of obvious weaknesses being visible?
- Did I remain free from all forms of anger, like irritation, frustration, grudge, revenge, etc.?
- Did I ensure that I neither give nor take sorrow, hurt, pain from anyone?
- Did I remain free from waste and negative?
- Did I remain ego less?
- Did I remain untouched by name, fame, praise, insult?
- Did I remain stable?
- Did I remain free from judgments, criticism, jealousy, comparison, hatred, etc.?
- Did I keep a conscious of serving each one whom I met?
- Did I bring the 8 main powers into practice and experience being powerful?
- Did I remain in self-respect and give respect to everyone?
- Did I practice being soul-conscious in actions and interactions?
- Did I take a one minute break every hour to reflect, meditate and control the traffic of thoughts in the mind? 

Life is a mystery

We live in a world that tries to explain everything.  But does everything need to be explained?  Should all of life's mysteries be unraveled?

Well, life is a mystery.  And mystery matters!  

Search.  Seek.  Wonder.

And bask in the mysteries of life.

Keep interested in life and it keeps life interesting.

Message for the day

To be impressed is to imbibe virtues.

Thought to Ponder:   When I see someone whose qualities I like, I tend to admire them. But, this is not enough. If I really admire them, I need to make an effort to bring those qualities in my life. Inspiration always leads to transformation. It becomes easy for me to see an example and follow. 

Point to Practice: Today I will pick up one quality in the person I admire and make a conscious effort to bring it into my life. That is the tribute that I would be paying to that person. When I keep doing that with every person who is important in my life, I will be free from
 feelings of inferiority, jealousy or any other weakness. 

In Spiritual Service,
Brahma Kumaris
